Foreigner Identity Number (NIE)

We help you obtain your NIE so you can invest with us.

What is the NIE (Foreigner Identity Number)?

The NIE begins with a letter X, Y or Z, followed by 7 numbers and ending with a check digit.
The NIE is a personal, unique and exclusive number that all foreigners who, due to their economic, professional or social interests, are related to Spain must have, for identification purposes.
The personal number will be the foreigner's identifier, which must appear on all the documents that are issued or processed, as well as the proceedings that are stamped on his identity card or passport.
